The Gunners have been keeping tabs on Osimhen, but it seems as though they have found another option
Arsenal could end their pursuit of Napoli talisman Victor Osimhen if they succeed in securing the services of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
Since the last transfer window, the North London giants have been seriously linked with a move for Osimhen, but all their attempts fell through. However, they could end all links with the former Lille man soon, as the Daily Express reports that the Gunners are in advanced talks with Manchester City to sign Gabriel Jesus.
Arsenal could get the Brazilian striker for £27million. And if the deal goes through, it could be tough for them to shill out another 80-100million euros for Osimhen, especially as they need reinforcements in midfield and defense.
Over the years, the Gunners have been shrewd with their transfers, preferring to make one marquee signing at a time.
Nonetheless, Osimhen could still seal a transfer to the Premier League, with Manchester United and Newcastle as possible destinations.
